The Rochester ‘Terence’ Skull Spat Boot
By Guy Sangster-Adams
Snake-hipped, skinny, Jeffery~West Rochester ‘Terence’ Skull Spat Boots, are imbued with three centuries of English libertinism. From the infamous rake John Wilmot, the 2nd Earl of Rochester, to the Rolls-Royces in swimming pools, exploding drum kits, Fenders burnt and demolished against amplifiers, and not to mention the drink, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll debauchery.
The extravagant, rakishly slim Rochester last extends to the sharpest point in Jeffery~West’s collection. Their opulence further extended by the skull studs adorning the sides of the luxurious Python-esque Print in rakish yellows and reds. But neither boot is child’s play, the pursuits they embody are adult in the extreme. This darker force lurking in the depth is compounded by the blood-red insoles, headed with ‘Villain’ and bearing inside the iconic Richard Burton.
“You may be as vicious about me as you please. You will only do me justice” – Richard Burton.
